Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

No sound coming from my Dell 173FP monitor

I have purchased a second hand 17" dell 173FP monitor which has no manual with it. The screen appears to be working well although there is no sound coming from the monitor, I was wondering are there speakers usually located inside this monitor or do I have to purchase seperate speakers in order to have sound? Also I cannot see where speakers would plug into monitor!!! Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks

This monitor does not have built in speakers you will need to buy some... The AS 500 soundbar fits on to it but is now not available. See if you can find it second hand.. Or buy USB speakers that fit into the back of your PC as the mointor does not have any ports.

Normally if the screen is over 5 years old you will need external speakers as ther will be none built in

Dell E173FPc 17" TFT when turned on goes black


Hi Gaz,

First, verify the monitor is functional.
Monitor STFC (Self Test Feature Check)
Turn off the monitor
Plug the monitor power cord directly into the wall socket to remove any surge protectors or APCs from the troubleshooting equation
Unplug the monitor video cable from the back of the computer
Turn on the monitor
The floating dialog box should appear on screen against a black background.
If the issue appears during the STFC, the monitor is defective. What are the results please?

Video cards that can handle two monitors at the same time have cables with two plugs on the monitor end.

If your video cable has two plugs on the monitor end, try the other plug.

Dell - 17" flat screen


This sounds like the back light is gone on the monitir... to check this look very close at the monitor whet the PC has booted, if you see a VERY dim image on screen then it suggests that the back light is gone.

Many monitors hace a 3 year warranty so I would try a warranty claim before throwing it away

Screeen comes on --then goes blank


Your inverter circuit is faulty. This controls the lights inside the screen so you can see what is happening on the LCD panel itself.
If you shine a torch into the LCD from the top at an angle you will still see the images on the screen. But with no light inside to project it outwards, it's dark.

A local TV repair shop should be able to do the reprair fairly cheap, but it's best to make a few phone calls and check they will work on an LCD monitor firstly, and secondly a rough quote.
This is a very common fault with LCD monitors.

Hope that helps =)
